      Montana Client Testimonials

      "If you are considering purchasing a ranch in Montana, Idaho or Wyoming we can’t say enough great things about Jeff Shouse. Jeff is one of the smartest, driven and honorable people I know.  When he’s negotiating on your behalf he is firm, but fair, and delivers results.  Jeff’s knowledge and insight of ranches is phenomenal and his ability to keep transactions on track and moving forward is world class.  Jeff started out as our broker and quickly became a trusted advisor and friend.  Thank you Jeff for helping us find and buy our dream ranch!"

      Ben and Liz Little, ST Bar Ranch

      "I just completed my second Montana purchase with Craig Janssen and Live Water. In both instances, Craig worked with both the seller and me as Buyer, and in both cases, I felt that he was looking after my interests as well as those of the seller. Craig was thorough and professional in all respects. He was responsive in a timely manner, a big thing with me, to all my questions.  And if he didn’t have an answer, he got it for me right away. This last transaction was old school, no drama, blowups, or posturing. Craig’s ethics, diligence, and demeanor did much to maintain this tenor and contributed significantly to a transaction that, dare I say, was enjoyable. Above all, Craig is a straight shooter, trustworthy, and a good guy. With agents like Craig, it’s no wonder that Live Water Properties has the reputation and success it has."

      J. Magee, Montana Ranch Buyer

      "It is rare to find someone who has both a high level of expertise and goes above and beyond the work that is needed to get the job done. We could not be more satisfied with Dan Mahoney and his service and attention to detail. We highly recommend him to others and would have him represent us again."

      Sally, Montana River Lodge

      "When it came time to sell our 1,500-acre Montana fishing ranch we knew we would have to find a broker who understood the beauty and uniqueness of this special place. We found that in Jeff Shouse, of Live Water, and his 35 years of market knowledge. Jeff’s expertise in how to position this property and his understanding of who the buyer would be, led to an efficient process and excellent final sales price. Jeff’s friendly, pleasant and easygoing manner made for a wonderful experience!"

      Vickie, Seller of Canyon Ranch

      "I highly recommend Dan Mahoney at Live Water Properties in Missoula, Montana!  Our sale involved three owners (5 individuals including spouses) involved in the process, and none of us live in Montana.  Add to that the pandemic of 2020, which officially arrived about three months after we listed.  What could go wrong?  Nothing!  Dan took everything in stride, kept us all focused on the issue at hand, and professionally guided us through the offers, counter offers, disclosures, and closing to a successful sale!  He always responded to questions in a very timely manner.  He was focused on our transaction, and made me feel like we were his only client. I plan to go meet him in person when I visit the area because I now have a new friend in Montana."
